The dam construction process began in 1971 – 72 when a test grouting programme along the dam axis was carried out.
Today Simly Dam is fed by the melting snow and natural spring of Murree Hills & the surrounding areas and the water stored at the lake is supplied to Islamabad for drinking purposes. It is also popular for its picnic spot because of its scenic location.
